Beware of Using Google Or OpenDNS For iTunes

SchizoStatic You would think. (348 comments)

Why do they use the dns for the geo location and not the ip address itself? You would think that would make way more sense.

Hulu May Begin Charging For Content Next Year

SchizoStatic Re:my vote goes to (234 comments)

I agree there. I honestly wouldn't mind paying like others have said. As long as it is reasonable and I am not seeing commercials. But they would have to do better on their availability issues.

SchizoStatic Re:Wii emulation on XBox360? (39 comments)

I never stated they are required. Yet, I wouldn't be surprised if it went to court and they lost.

Xbox 360 Homebrew Finally Arrives

SchizoStatic Re:Wii emulation on XBox360? (39 comments)

Nintendo would just sue M$ saying it is their job to secure their platform from allowing their customers to run "pirated versions" of the WII software.

SchizoStatic Road Rash (142 comments)

I personally loved Road Rash and think along with Twisted Metal, that with the newer platforms available these games would kick ass.

Deposit Checks By iPhone

SchizoStatic Re:Checks (293 comments)

A post office exchange note is a check. It is a "Money Order" basically a certified check, but a check none the less.

Deposit Checks By iPhone

SchizoStatic Re:Checks (293 comments)

I would seriously change banks then. If your bank is confused by a simple check then they should not be a bank.

SchizoStatic Re:Free markets (252 comments)

Actually if you read some other threads you would see I work at a video store as well as other ventures. If I wanted to get a movie and "back" it up I could.

Minn. Supreme Court Upholds City's Right To Build Own Network

SchizoStatic Re:Free markets (252 comments)

What is sad you really only have two choices for highspeed in the metro. Comcast and qwest. You can get charter if you are in the south metro tho. I am trying to avoid Comcast but I don't need/want a home phone and qwest's unhooked dsl is over priced. Yes I live in Minnesota

Blu-ray Adoption Soft, More Still Own HD DVD

SchizoStatic Re:I work in he rental industry (685 comments)

Interesting concept. I can't quote company numbers but I know for my store that yes our comps are down but only be half percents compared to the last two years. We haven't changed out business model per say. But expanded it. We offer an online service to combat net flix. Not sure how its worse? I have used both and delivery times were the same. The only better thing between the two was that Blockbuster allowed me to take the mailers back into the store to get another movie while I waited for my next to be mailed to me.

HDMI 4.1 details released

SchizoStatic SchizoStatic writes  |  more than 5 years ago

SchizoStatic writes "As quoted from Engadget

At any rate, the main additions to the format are an Ethernet channel, audio return channel, 3D over HDMI, 4K x 2K resolution support, a micro HDMI connector (around half the size of the existing HDMI Mini plug) and an automotive connection system.

Although it seems Monster is taking a page out of Microsoft's book and has several versions of the cable. So you had better read up before buying your new cables."
